Potocnik urges FP7 participation

EU Commissioner Janez Potocnik called on all Western Balkan countries to participate as Associated Countries in the 7th Framework Programme.

During a presentation at the meeting of the "Friends of Europe" Commissioner Potocnik underlined the importance of research, generally for raising the standards of living but also in view of joining the European Union.
He also offered insights from his own personal experiences, as he was chief negotiator for Slovenia during the accession process to the EU.
